Postsecondary educators and librarians play integral roles in helping their students develop the habits and skills necessary to thrive in a digital information economy. With their work in mind, leading educational organizations—notably the Association of College & Research Libraries, the Council of Writing Program Administrators, the National Council of Teachers of English, and the National Writing Project—have created “frameworks” to guide teachers, librarians, and administrators. While the frames are solid, a paucity of robust practical and pedagogical discussion has hindered the ability of educators to put their ideas into practice. 

The Future Scholar—third in an award-winning series from editors Randall McClure and James P. Purdy—has been written to address this gap. Two dozen teachers, librarians, administrators, and writing center professionals share their expertise and insights on successfully utilizing the frameworks for writing and information literacy. The result is an important book for any educator who wants to better understand, evaluate, and teach the literacies critical to equipping our students as effective consumers and producers of information.

"McClure and Purdy continue their groundbreaking series ... An important addition to the information literacy scholarship—don’t miss it!"

—Grace Veach, Dean of Library Services,
Southeastern University
